That's an old photo and several of those from that accident were shared on the old 500Ecstasy board. Accident is probably 10 years old now.

But this one did "survive" - or the VIN did, so its spirit lives on in a new 036 chassis. :-)

A wrecked Norwegian car merged with a Swedish car. So it is a chassis replacement and still fully original.

That explains why I couldn't locate details of the wreck on the website, although there were hundreds of other Benz wrecks posted.

:o Overseas folk sure take totalling Benzes to a whole new level!

For Norway it's due to the huge import tax. But it has changed a bit to the better now, so the 036 fleet is increasing year by year.

You find some more pics of that Kuwait accident here: https://www.google.com/search?site=&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1396&bih=774&q=Kuwaut+E500+crash&oq=Kuwaut+E500+crash&gs_l=img.3...3385.13465.0.14253.19.9.1.9.0.0.220.1 268.0j8j1.9.0....0...1ac.1.53.img..10.9.1168.Nz9yj MMe1Nk&safe=active&gws_rd=ssl#safe=active&tbm=isch&q=Kuwait+Mercedes+E500+crash&imgdii=_

Actually i have to tell a (funny)storry to this accident. I bought my 500 in the end ob the year 2000 and somewhere around that time i was starting to search in the internet for pictures etc. and found the photos of this accident in Kuwait, so fast forward and as life goes on, i found myself living in the building in the far right of the photo,where you can see the car from the back side. I just drove to work one day when i remembered that i had a picture of an accident 500 in Kuwait somewhere stored in a hard disc, was speachless when i discovered that this was literally infront of my door....
By the time I discovered these photos first, I was of course living and working at home in germany and if someone would have told me that I would be living one day in the middle east, I would just have had a good laugh.

I'd give anything to have gotten the VIN number from that wrecked car....

Gerry let me see if we still have the car in our system, I doubt it - but could give it a try.
